Middlemass, Ruth Elizabeth (McFarlane)

March 11,1925-March 29, 2014

It is with great sadness that Ruth’s family announces her passing on March 29, 2014 at NRGH Palliative Care. Ruth was a caring wife for 68 years to Bob. She was a wonderful mother to Janice and Laurie and a mother-in-law to Dave. Ruth will be remembered always with love as a very special Grandma to Andrea, Catherine, William, Katie, Jennifer, Sean, Cindy and Robert as well as great-grandmother to Lois. Predeceased by her sisters, Isobel and Jean, Ruth is remembered by nieces Anne, Pat, and Gail, nephews Scott and Gary plus sister-in-laws Dorothy and Gladys.

Ruth worked at Sears Nanaimo, ran the Cedar Baby Clinic and volunteered in the community. She was enriched by the fellowship of the Cedar Activity Club and the Cedar United Church.

At Ruth’s request, no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations to Memorials Department of B.C. Lung Association, or Palliative Care at NRGH would be appreciated by Ruth and the family.

Special thanks to Dr. Collins, Dr. Love, Home Care Nurses, Care Aides, and her angels – Ellen, Annabel, Sandra, Angela, Christine, and Christina at Palliative Care.

“Remember me with smiles and laughter,

for that is how I will remember you all.”
